maybe crop the foreground a bit as its to dark and does nothing for the rest of the shot,the cars and the sky will look better without the dark foreground

well the dark foreground was the idea behind the edit. the original picture was alot lighter but i wanted to have the foreground dark and have the cars and sky at a much lighter exposure. just messing in LR5 on this

Composition is the biggest issue, I think. You're subject is smack dab in the middle, with a boring sky and a dark foreground.

The foreground doesn't really add anything to the image and since it's dark, it actually hurts it in my opinion. I would have shot much closer, or find another angle.

alright. it was hard to get a good angle on it. there was deep nasty mud every were so it was the best i could think of. i appreciate the comments and suggestions and might goo back and try a different angle soon and try something different with editing.

Yeah, if you have access to this, the subject could certainly produce a compelling shot. You might just have to wait for the right conditions. I've shot things over and over again... many many times, until I got the shot I wanted.
